For four years now, I've been using Herbalife products. I have tried a wide variety of other diet plans and diet items as well. The ones that were cheaper, I found, were terrible to take. Plans, similar to Nutrisystem, succeeded but you gained even more weight back once you were off their overpriced food. I'm not a dealer, but I signed on to get a cheaper product. I think it's delicious and a perfect meal substitute, if made correctly! The supplements have gone a long way in helping me gain enough motivation to move my lazy ass to get out and do some walking, biking and swimming!
